Hey guys -
Found this today:
Chromebrew is a nice, free package manager for Chromium/Chrome OS. It seems to work great on the Free version of CloudReady.
While there aren't a huge amount of sources available yet, the install is easy and you can get access a bunch of useful tools like tmux and emacs that aren't available for cmd-line use on CloudReady by default. Great way to start bridging the gap between a typical Linux distro and CloudReady.
If you're technical, you could even install git using the package manager and then help contribute to the project by adding additional packages!
Neverware does not make, support, or officially endorse this project. I just thought some of you might be interested!
